Heatherside Infant School

Our Governors

Peter Richards - Chair of Governors

I believe the Heatherside ethos equips our children with the skills and confidence they need to become independent, inquisitive learners.  I have 2 children who loved their time at Heatherside and I have seen the school give them a great start on their learning journeys.  I became a parent governor in 2017 and hope I can support the school to continue delivering its vision of nurturing life-long learners.

Christine Lynch - Headteacher
 

I have the great privilege of being the Headteacher her at Heatherside Infant School; a post I have held since April 2009 and thoroughly enjoy.  I am passionate about education and believe that it is the best gift in life that we can give our children.  It is very important that our Heatherside children have quality provision that provides a firm foundation for their future.  As Headteacher, with the support of our highly skilled Governing Body, I am committed to leading the staff in ensuring that the strategic direction of the school achieves this aim.

Alex Brewer 

I became a Governor in 2016 in order to contribute to a school I believe is providing children with the best possible start to their education.  I have a background in PR and Marketing, and more recently in Charity management and enjoy putting these into practice in an educational setting.  Both our children enjoyed a wonderful three years at Heatherside Infant School.

Katherine Goodale
 

I joined the Heatherside Governing Body as a Parent Governor in 2019, shortly after my eldest son started at the school.  We have 3 boys who I hope will all eventually have their time at Heatherside.  Being part of the Governing Body will allow me to contribute to the school that will educate each of our children and use the skills that I have gained during my career.

Chris Hale
 

My daughter spent happy years at Heatherside Infants which gave her a wonderful start to her school life.  I have had an interesting career in industry and government and I am now in the fortunate position to be able to give something back to the schooling system which nurtured my daughter.  It is a privilege to be able to do this through my role as Local Authority Governor for Heatherside Infant School.  I very much look forward to supporting the school's dedicated staff, governors, parents and families to do this.

Josh McCormack
 

I teach at a local secondary school with responsibility for managing transition.  Previously I worked in a local junior school where I taught a range of year groups.  I have also worked for the NHS, within the Surrey Clinical Commissioning Groups (CCGs) managing projects and developing the referral pathway for the Surrey CAMHs service.  I therefore bring valuable knowledge of both education and health care to the Governing Body.

Kate Probert 

I have been a Governor since December 2014.  Having worked in both business and education, the role of a governor has enabled me to combine all my skills.  I am passionate about education, in particular outdoor learning.  Our children have both gone through school.  It has been fantastic to be part of a great team at Heatherside ensuring the best opportunities for all our children.

 

Helen Wakeham 
 

I became a Parent Governor in 2017 when my daughter went into Year 1.    Having worked in education for many years in a variety of roles and settings, I am really keen to use my skills and knowledge to contribute to Heatherside in any way I can.  There is an amazing sense of community at Heatherside, where the children really thrive through having a huge variety of learning opportunities.  I feel privileged to be apart of a school that is really committed to developing each child's full potential, as both a parent and school governor.

Charlie Wallace 
 

I joined Heatherside's Governing Body in 2019 and am a member of the Resources Committee.  My daughter started in 2018 and my son is due to follow in 2020.  My background is business development and strategy having worked for BAE Systems for almost 30 years.  What motivates me is making sure that Heatherside Infants continues to be a brilliant, safe and fun place to learn.  I hope to apply my industry experience in helping Heatherside access extra funding so that it can provide even more wonderful things for its staff and children!

Carolyn Ray - Clerk
 

I have been the Clerk for the Governing Body since April 2016 and am delighted to be associated with school as my three boys all started their educational journey here. Two have just finished university and my youngest is at Farnborough Sixth.  It is truly enlightening to witness how passionate the school's Governing Body and staff are in providing the best start for our children.
